Shark and Diver in a Cage – level 3

Shark and Diver in a Cage – level 3

17-10-2016 15:00

Cage diving is a popular tourist attraction in countries with shark-infested waters, such as off the west coast off Mexico's Baja California peninsula. Some people went cage-diving when a shark went for some bait and hit the cage. The shark broke the rail and it became trapped inside the cage with the diver.

Someone filmed the horrifying moment on camera and, thankfully, after the shark escaped, the diver resurfaced remarkably unscathed. People think that he was able to move out of the shark’s way as it entered the cage.

Difficult words: shark-infested (many sharks), peninsula (a piece of land almost surrounded by water), bait (food which makes animals come), resurface (come back up to the surface of water), remarkably (surprisingly), unscathed (completely fine).
